WO: Weekly Obsessions

Some family news had me all shook up last weekend, and I’ve been a bit melancholy since. Pensive, of course … I just don’t want it to turn into a permanent state. These four guys have helped me to get out of my own head a little bit and just relax.

  1. Llama Tasered in … Florida: Of course, Floriduh. My home state is notorious for breeding its own special brand of crazy, and this story is no exception. A co-worker legit sent it to me because “the headline reminded [her] of [me].”
  2. Ben & Jerry’s Late Night Snack: You already know a date night with these two main men is pretty wonderful. But this edition, inspired by Jimmy Fallon, is my absolute can’t-live-without. Salty, sweet and swirly.
  3. Prancercise!: I heard rumblings of this video last week but finally watched it Monday. And while exercise really is good for you to de-stress, I much prefer laughing till my sides hurt. Her rhyming instructions seal the deal.
  4. “The Girl” – City and Colour: Music will forever have healing properties for me, and this ditty is a recent fave. Starts slow, hits the hook and captures a relationship so magically.

Enjoy two scoops of YouTube, no extra charge!

    thanks for my introduction to city and colour!

    • Wittyburg says :

      Glad you enjoyed! Some of their other stuff I love: Save Your Scissors, The Grand Optimist and Comin’ Home.

      They come up every once in a while on my Pandora station, and it’s always a nice little escape.

        i love comin’ home.

        well, i’ve seen a palace in london, i’ve seen a castle in wales
        but I’d rather wake up beside you and breathe that old familiar smell
        i never thought you could leave me, i figured i was the one
        but i understand your sadness, so i guess i should just hold my tongue

        i can feel that.

        looking forward to reading more of your posts.

    Oh and that must be great that your friend told you that a llama reminded you of her..

  5. bensbitterblog says :

    I saw this Prancersize and about lost it. How do I do something so idiotic yet harmless to get viraled on the internet! I guess I better go do stupid stuff! Another fine weekly obsession!

    • Wittyburg says :

      I think you have to be such a caricature of a human being that it will go viral and be a national treasure (for a day or two).

      Or, just have your kids beat you down and make it on America’s Funniest Home Videos. They still have that, right?
